Location was good. Not informed by staff when checking in that housekeeping needed to be requested, otherwise not done. Didn't see the sticker on the mirror in the bathroom about this until day 2!

The bedsheets/comforter was surprisingly used and dirty. So was the rug and parking lot needs to be renovated. Place has potential if only they cared about it. I do not recommend this place and will not be going back.

Check in was great. Room was dirty and disappointing. Dirty linens in hallway for the two days I was there. Requesting service for room is stupid! Clean and replenish room, or shut down! I’m traveling, no COVID issues, not requiring masks. Give me clean glasses and coffee daily, make the bed, remove used towels.
